American Chemical Society award recognizes DuPont’s launch of Rynaxypyr.
The recognition honored the DuPont Crop Protection team for creating Rynaxypyr — an innovative insect control product that has an excellent environmental profile and protects the global food supply from damaging insects to help feed a global growing population.
"What makes Rynaxypyr the game-changer for agriculture is not only the new chemistry, but also the way we integrated chemistry and biology to fundamentally redesign the new active ingredient discovery process," said Rik L. Miller, president of DuPont Crop Protection. "This new process involving integrated science, leveraged our research team, and elevated key health and environmental characteristics to the same level of importance as pesticidal activity."
Rynaxypyr is a precedent-setting innovation for the advancement of sustainable agriculture. The product enables growers to more effectively protect yields and as a result recover more value from their crops. Growers in developing countries can particularly realize the benefits of Rynaxypyr through increased yield, which helps feed their families, and the associated economic benefits that come with increased profitability.
Scientists from DuPont that were honored are: John H. Freudenberger, Thomas P. Selby, Daniel Cordova, George P. Lahm. and Thomas M. Stevenson. Rynaxypyr is registered in 94 countries on more than 400 crops, including vegetables, pome and stone fruit, tree nuts, grapes, corn, cotton, and many other crops.
The "Heroes of Chemistry" recognizes scientists whose innovative work in chemistry and chemical engineering led to the development of commercial products that benefit humankind.
